Trail Improvement Day- Lodi Valley Chapter

May 20, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Greetings volunteers!

After a long winter it is time to get back outside and turn our attention to improving our trails for the rest of the year.

Our next workday will be Saturday, May 20th, meeting at Lodi High School, 1100 Sauk Street, starting at 9:00 am, to enhance the hiker experience across the Rainbow Bridge to Strangeway Avenue. We plan to work until about 12:00pm but come for as much or as little time as you can give. Watch for the yellow Ice Age Trail Event signs.

That morning of work will be a part of Lift Lodi, a city-wide day of service. To learn more about Lift Lodi and what else is going on that day go to http://www.liftlodi.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/LiftLodi.

Our tasks for the day will be to clear the trail corridor as needed; clear brush from around the trail and bridge; weed the stone steps on either side of the bridge; refresh and repaint all the yellow blazes; hang some birdhouses along the trail as part of Lift Lodi.

All the tools will be provided, just wear clothes you don’t mind getting paint on, bring some water, work gloves (we’ll have extras to use), and your energetic attitude!

Questions? Contact Ken at kengel617@comcast.net or 847-687-0527.

As a valued volunteer with the Ice Age Trail, we thank you. We want you to know of an important action you need to take to ensure that you have a completed Individual Volunteer Agreement established with the National Park Service for continuing your valued work on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. The volunteer agreement guarantees that you have access to important safety information and work guidance. The volunteer agreement also extends the same protections to you for injury coverage that federal employees receive, should you become injured while performing approved volunteer activities.
